Who is eligible?
Right now, there are thousands of citizens in the old British Commonwealth who are unaware that they may be eligible for a British passport. Since many of these citizens have parents who were born in the UK, it’s no surprise that the children of British-born parents constitute one of the largest population groups that qualify for a British passport.
Given these numbers, HM Passport Office has become incredibly stringent when it comes to processing and issuing British passports. Applicants must have all supporting documents ready at the time of application or renewal. The problem is, many potential passport holders do not have the time, expertise or documentation available to undertake the process themselves.
What we do
1st Contact Visas applies for a British passport on your behalf, eliminating the bureaucracy, stress and delays of dealing with HM Passport Office yourself.
Whether you plan to apply for a first time British passport or renew a passport that is due to expire within the next nine months, we will guide you through the application process from beginning to end, sourcing all supporting documents where required and answering any questions you have along the way.
Please note that you can only renew your British passport if it is burgundy in colour. Black and blue passports are treated as new applications, which necessitate different documentation.

Many private companies take as long as eight to twelve weeks to process a British passport. 1st Contact Visas makes sure that your passport application is processed within four to six weeks, ensuring that renewals are resolved equally as quickly.
Since some cases are naturally more complex, we use our expertise to determine the applicable path to citizenship in each instance. In all scenarios, we will keep you abreast of any developments, required details and cost implications.
